Attic Youth Center's 25th Anniversary Continues the Story of LGBTQ Youth Sep 5, 2018
by: Robert Nonemacker, Press Release
Philadelphia - Once upon a time, 25 years ago…The Attic Youth Center's story began. Like pen to paper, The Attic Youth Center's supporters and community has allowed for thousands of LGBTQ youth's stories to be told, to be shared and most importantly, to exist.
For those who might not be familiar with The Attic Youth Center's mission, The Attic Center creates opportunities for LGBTQ youth to develop into healthy, independent, civic-minded adults within a safe and supportive community, and promotes the acceptance of LGBTQ youth in society. The Attic began in 1993 as a small, weekly support group, and has since grown into a nationally recognized, multi-service youth organization that is one of the largest community centers in the U.S. committed exclusively to serving LGBTQ youth and allies. There is a lot celebrate!
Proceeds from The Attic's 25th Anniversary Gala will allow The Attic to continue to provide high-quality programs and services for Philadelphia's LGBTQ youth. Currently, The Attic serves over 1,000 youth each year through its life skills, mental health counseling, supportive services, and community engagement programming, and reaches an additional 5,000 individuals through The Bryson Institute, The Attic's education and training program.
On Saturday, November 3, The Attic Youth Center will celebrate their 25th Anniversary with an evening of inspiration, dance and of course, incredible food and beverage. Since this Gala is only every five years – you do not want to miss out! Occurring at the stunning Crystal Tea Room and black tie optional attire, their 25th Anniversary will be a night to shine and create a new chapter in the story of the essential work that The Attic Youth Center does to empower our LGBTQ youth.
